UK pound sterling
The actual terminoligy for UK currency is 'pounds sterling' as denoted by the £ sign. Localy we don't often refer to it as the 'Great British pound' any more.
The £ sign is actualy an L and stands for the Latin 'Livre', meaning 'pound'. Quite a few global currecies use a similar name, for example Italy with the Lire.
I believe the word Dollar comes from the name of an area in the Czech Republic where silver was mined to be minted into early coins. The word Dollar is used by many country's curencies throughout the world.
The aboutus.php address area hard sets the country code - is there away to change it? Actualy it would be useful to be able to set this address area independant of the Store Location and Google Settings page in Store Manager.
